Don't get bored these school holidays
Summer has come to an end, the towels are washed, the bucket and the spade is packed away, and the rain umbrella swaps spots with the beach umbrella in the boot of the car. But wait a minute and don't act too fast as the fun at South Australia's favourite local beach is set to continue for a few more weeks yet.

From 18th April to 28th April the City of Holdfast Bay are putting on a two week program of fun known as Play at the Bay where visitors are encouraged to play, explore and experience a range of activities and workshops during the school holidays. With several key themes there is bound to be something to keep even the most active of kids occupied and enthralled. Be Active is the first theme and includes such activities as the Holdup Race around the Bay, Grasshopper Beach Soccer, Bubblemaker Scuba Experience and the Snorkel Experience.

For those people with an artistic bent, then why not look towards one of the activities from the Arts and Crafts themed workshops. Sue Norman, that magical Mandala artist, will be conducting a Mandala Magic workshop at Brighton Beach, while the Clay workshop, the Mosaic workshop and the Beadwork on the Beach session provides opportunities to manufacture some unique and personal Mother's Day presents. Or if outdoors is your idea of fun the Kite Making with Nature Play SA, Cool4Kids Making Musical Instruments or the Beach Studio may be the fun that you are looking for.

Food is always an attractor and the Fun with Food themed workshops seek to address that. The Children's Chocolate Workshops and Muffin Magic are sure to fill quickly, while Make Your Own Pizza and the Cooking Class will seek to demonstrate that healthy eating can be fun.

While for those just looking for fun, the Just for Fun themed workshops include the Fairy School and Superhero Academy, Beauty and the Beast with an Origami Workshop, Dance Academy Movie and Dance workshop, and the The Lego Batman Movie and Comic Artistry Workshop.

All workshops and events are held within the district of Holdfast Bay. Bookings are essential and places are going fast so make sure to book on time to secure your spot.
